Started this one -



to be done as Red 2

to keep these company










and also have the one only built 262 U5, which found it's way to JV44 as well.


Impressive parts list - two full D series in the box - plus a micro 1/144th 262


early progress




and some update pics, you may notice some really rough looking bits, yes they are!!, but closed up you can't see them - this is a tough kit in some fit areas that I ''gently persuaded" - or was that a hack and slash - to get the fuse closed up.

I looked at the standard Eduard A series kit, seems the sprues are identical with only the D parts being newer, I had alot of grief getting the fuse closed up with the firewalls and pit tub, then a near disaster with the stupid way the want you to glue that upper instrument cluster shroud, once the front canopy is fitted the painted frame will hide that join.













Fuse to wings went surprisingly well

I could write a page about the woes of this damned kit..........

anyway, I started it up again, not really liking my mottle work, by the time I got the mix to spray half right, too thin, too thick, repeat again, I just threw it on in frustration so it is as it is.

heaps of flatcote will go on this thing later.

Had so much fun fitting the engine/cowl/rad flaps/prop tonight it got very dark....... at least the prop spins.

anyway the pics.













Will be very glad when this is done.

Decals done! beautiful Italian Cartograf

no troubles with these, even mashed up two rectangular boxed ones on the tail in a moment of brain fade, took them off and re positioned them, not a break.



















will let the Future dry then flatcoat next up.

I am glad this pile of  :poop: is finally done, the worst for fitting parts from the engine, closing the fuse, I really liked how they instruct you to fit

the cannon bodies and another part, then two pages on fit the ammo feeds, which don't go in because the cannon bodies foul them, then after fixing that,

the cannon bodies don't fit because of the other previous fitted part!

engine/cowl/rad flaps/prop to fuse front = a nice big gap, fun to fix that. Broke the open engine flaps into three pieces, plastic throughout is very soft,

the smaller parts are murder. Broke the tail wheel as well. And the loop antenna getting it cleaned up. Why not a Pe one on the fret??

To add yet another insult to one's intelligence the windscreen didn't fit, and to top this off I broke the thing in half trying to fit it.

At least there was a spare in the box.

Compared to the old Pro Modeller and Tamiya offerings, this sit way higher at the front.
